Wotzon – the search engine for pubsaletalk
Wotzon is a new app often described as ‘The Search Engine for Pubs’
The free app supports both pubgoers and establishments. By giving them access to information on pubs and bars in a simple, easy to find format, customers can find exactly what they’re looking for, whether that’s a live music event, restaurant facilities or a child-friendly establishment that has a playground to keep the little ones entertained. On the other hand, enterprising pubs can use the app to attract more customers, improve their online presence and shout about their events.
Paul Norton, Founder of Wotzon, said, “Pubs are part of the British culture and to see so many closing down is disheartening. Being a real ale lover myself, I saw a gap in the market for a search engine that could help me find which pubs have my favourite ale on draught. Local pubs should be part of the community, our app can help them become a hub once again.
“By connecting directly with potential customers, pubs can increase their footfall, especially those that are out of the way and don’t typically get spotted by new customers. Whether customers are looking for a regular quiz night in their area or a pub that sells their favourite drink while on holiday, Wotzon can bring up a host of suitable establishments for them to try.”
The app also connects brands with both consumers and pubs, allowing them to see new opportunities to promote their products, whether that be drinks, snacks, or something else. The platform gives brands access to more information and the ability to see what’s resonating with their target market, including where their product is being stocked. Wotzon are looking to partner with both leading brands and small to medium drinks manufacturers to develop an accurate drinks and product database for the consumers to search through.
The app was officially launched to Android users on the 7th February 2017 at the renowned Pub17 Conference at the Olympia Exhibition Centre, London. The iOS app is currently in development and will be ready by mid-March 2017.
